coming down with all the embers. it was just landing everywhere. that is what saved us, we would put them out as we would see them. the lady next door is almost 90-year-old. she had another house over there and fortunately she wasn't here during that time. she will be very happy her house was saved. >> he was telling us that he was confident he could save his house and also his wife did not want to leave her keepsakes behind. they are also running off generator now and making sure to keep an eye out for lewders. >> unfortunately during these disasters you see people try to take advantage. what have you heard about looting happening in that area? >> well security is very tight inside hidden valley lake. when we went there today somebody stopped us at the gate. they asked for an id and we noticed a lot of law enforcement
officials driving around the neighborhoods there. four people were arrested last night for looting in that community. it is something that is happened. sadly it is something people should not have to deal with during this time of tragedy. >> i want to bring in mark. we heard her talking about the precipitation there. how is the radar looking right now? >> well the radar has been fairly active for northern california. she has been there all day around the fire zone. today has been the tran ignition day ignition -- transition day. if we could bring her in, as far as the weather conditions you have noticed through the day. -- have you noticed it? >> it was don't bad. then it started to rain around noontime. the rain showers picked up around 2:00 in the afternoon.
we have seen rain here and in middletown. >> as far as the wind with this cold front, i have been noticing stronger winds, have you experienced those gusts periodically? >> yeah, they did say that winds were a challenge today. >> we do have some more rain showers in the forecast. thank you for the weather report out. there as far as the radar we will take a look at that. lots of green out there. it is moving into parts of the north bay. we will take a closer inspection of the coverage. the area of interest around the fire zone. you see sit basically -- it was dry around her live shots around hidden valley lake. you can still see seem showers in the area but the bulk of the activity right now is kind of moving out to the south and to the east.
temperatures, they are only cool side. that is great news, in the 50s right now. only in the 50s. humidity levels way up there. that is some of the cloud cover in this region. those winds are increasing. they have been a factor all day long. that is probably the biggest challenge for fire crews all day. the winds gusting out of the south around 24 to 31 miles an hour. as far as rainfall totals, they have picked up quite a bit. just the main action so far has been about a tenth of an inch. you can see 0.18 out there. hawk eye 0.15. we do have some warmer temperatures in the forecast as we head into the weekend. today was a great day for opportunity. we will have more on that in a few minutes. well mark certainly good news to be talking about rain. >> our coverage continues on
ktvu.com. you will find latest developments in the fire fight as well. other headlines now, hundreds of students in in an east bay high school were evacuated today after a threatening note was found on campus. the students were evacuated to the football field shortly after lunchtime. we are told this note was found in one of the stall's of the boy's bathroom. officers used police dogs as they searched the campus. they haven't yet said what was written in that note. santa clara county supervisors have voted to equipped jail guards there with body cameras. san francisco is if only other county in california where jail guards wear those body cameras. that decision also came amid a guard misconduct scandal. during the meeting last night, they decided to put off
the decision on the controversial propose toll raise the min -- proposal to raise the minimum wage. that is set to go up by $1 next month and another $1.50 come next year. the proposal that was heard last night will keep raising the minimum each year till it reaches $19 an sure in the year 2020. republican candidates for president take stage tonight for round two of the presidential debate. donald trump and jeb bush are expected to go head to head. carly fiorina the only woman in the prime time debate expects to continue her momentum. >> lets check in now with ross. as we left our desks heading out here the debate was happening. tonight what we with expect? >> more on the j v debate in a bit.
tonight on the main stage you can expect fireworks. most of those blasts aimed at donald trump. he is the noon beat tonight. they are l all take to the stage in less than an hour. carly fiorina is now joining the top ten. there will be 11 of them on the stage side by side very close. he made that comment about her face, she launched an internet ad showing the proud faces of women across the country right here. jeb bush will be right on trump's side. remember bush used to be the front runner and now he is pulling in the single digits. this is a big moment for him to fight that allegation of low energy. as for the other people on the stage, ben carson will be on trump's other side. the man closest to trump right now in the polls. they are only four points apart.
he has hacked trump too on his religion but then backed off and even apologized. several other candidates are only increasing their rhetoric as this debate gets closer. it is a small intimate venue. candidates will be shoulder to shoulder and that could change that dynamics significantly between all of them having to stare right into each other's eyes as they blast each other. >> we will be a target. i think what you are going see and you could tell rand paul is itching for a fight. >> no, i think he is a fake. >> he is not a liberal. he is a narcissist. >> i just don't think my strategy will change at all.
litd it -- it will be to tell the truth and talk about my vision for america >> graham and -- the very first question was they were asked about them attacking donald trump. bobby asked that by saying trump is a really not a republican at all. overall he had a stronger performance than last night. that was one of the most memorable moments so far. those four are hoping to have a break-out moment like carly fiorina had last time. the main focus is on the top 11 candidates and their event starts tonight at 5:00. >> they talked about bush and the trump. that is intriguing. for me what i am looking at, i am intrigued by carly fiorina. primarily because she wasn't on this prime time stage last debate. do you think they will be the
number one foreign -- person up there to take on trump? >> she has come up in the polls but carson and trump have taken off and increased their lead over her. she really has to do something now. she made a big splash last night at the kid's table. she has shown us when trump attacked her on her face, she went right after him and put that internet attack ad out and got a lot of play on that. >> she also showed that does matter because look where it got her. lets talk about rick perry. first one to say i am out. rick perry is out of the race. to you believe after tonight we will see more walk away from this? >> i think we will see several people walk away from this. the money is limited. there is too many candidates and not enough money at this point.
i think governors are all on the bubble right now. the former governors, the current governors, none of them are doing well. keep in mind that latest poll has jeb bush at 6% of the vote compare that to ben carson which is 23%. donald trump at 27%. sit really amazing. -- it is really amazing. >> wow. good stuff. >> should be phone -- fun tonight. we will see you back tomorrow. >> thank you very much. up to 30,000 job will be cut apart of a new business plan for hp. in three minutes what this means for the the job market sit being watched and shared right there on our facebook page. take a look at the positive message it has and tell us what

largest tech companies. pam cook breaks it down for us no today's money business. >> we have job cuts and job edigs to talk about today. -- editions to talk about today. >> toys-r-us plans to hire workers for the very busy holiday season. however the company announced today that they will add fewer holiday workers this year than last year. toys"r"us plans to hire 40,000 workers at it's stores and distribution centers across the country but that is about 5,000 fewer workers compared to last year. most of the jobs will be part time. ups is also starting to think about the holidays. they plan to hire up to 95,000 employees to handle holiday shipping and deliveries. ups is offering both full and part time jobs that will run from november through january. if you are interested in working
for ups, you have to apply online. hp announced job cuts of up to 30,000 today. the cuts will come from the enterprise business. after that, hp ink will handle the printer and pc site of the company. they will focus on business software and services. we don't know how many of the jobs will be from here in the bay area. on the news analysts are very critical of hp saying this may not be enough to stay competitive. ceo megawhit man said the cuts should eliminate the needs for any future corporate restructuring. now she says the cuts over the last four years were focused on helping hp achieve a cost structure that is in line with
it's revenue and that the new cuts will help hp expand it's profit margins. the its can will save the company an estimated $2.7 million. >> for the past two years, they are some of the big retailers that have been building up their warehouses and distributions centers across the country to get their online orders to customers faster. analysts expect that they will have a hard time filling all of those holiday jobs. taking a look at what this means for the bay area job market. we have russell hancock there. he joins us now via skype. thank you for being here with us. >> happy to be here. thank you. >> we have companies now gearing up for the holidays. maybe not as much as last year but then you also have major companies like hp making these cuts. what do you make of all of this?
>> well the cuts at hp are attention grabbing because we are talking about simple con valley icon. the actual fact is that sit a very small part of the silicon valley store. what we have right now is an economy that is firing on all of it's cylinders. last year weed aed 120,000 new jobs to the area. this year we are on a pace to beet bate that number. the number of lay offs happening at hp are actually going to be spread over multiple contents and not just here in the bay area. it is easy to imagine that the people that are leaving the company will find other opportunities in a very booming technology sector. >> so okay so the cuts are attention grabbing and headline grabbing but you are saying not necessarily bad news because there are other opportunities out there. >> the story about silicon valley is that companies have their fortunes go up and down. this is -- silicon valley is a
graveyard of failed companies and many of them large companies. how about timeshare and see gate technology? these are all companies that used to claim the lion share of our work force but their fortunes change, this is a brutalizing churning dynamic economy. only companies that can reinvent themselveses will survive that. >> well when it comes to hp they say sit about being leaner and more competitive. what do you think it says about the company. >> this is a company that is troubled. nobody disputes that fact. this is a company for for more than decade has not been able to fig outer ure -- figure out what they want to be when it grows up.
the company has changed. it is less about printing. hp hasn't been able to navigate that change. whether it works in the long term, that is anybody's guess >> okay, russell. we don't know where they will come from but hopefully they will be able to find more work. russell hancock, thank you so much. >> always a pleasure. >> thanks. now to metrologist mark. i know fall is about a week away but it feels like it. i love the feel we have outside right now. >> it was great to dust off the rainfall graphic for today. >> i like seeing the green. >> yeah, we have a lot of green on this. the clouds definitely moved into the region. you probably notice d that change yesterday afternoon. for areas -- for the central
portions of the bay not much in terms of rainfall. holesburg up nearly a quarter of an inch. some more rainfall amounts we are adding to these totals right now. here is the coverage. basically a lot of action to report. here is a closer look at the radar. rainfall forecast up in the north bay. we could have amounts down to a quarter of an inch. here is the current rainfall pattern out there. this is widespread across the region. nothing too extreme but enough to wet the bay area roadways for the afternoon and evening commute. here you can see a little bit of activity approaching san francisco. as we do move the maps to the east here, some coverage, not all this is reaching the ground
but some action at least closing in here. south bay not much at all. that will be the case with this system with the main energy to the north of san jose. current temperatures out there right now we still have some 70s to report in livermore. san jose 73. san francisco 63. this is one of the forecast models. it might be a little too aggressive in the south bay. san jose may pick up trace amounts. here is the system we are tracking this cold front moving in from the north. this could be a quick mover. winds could be approaching 25 miles per hour. guess what? we go the opposite direction once again as we head into the weekend. a bit of a warmup beginning friday, saturday and sunday. i think sunday will be the warmest day of the weekend. that will translate to some
upper 90s inland. at least it is nice to attract some rain showers out. there here we are at 8:00 tonight. not much coverage in the north bay. maybe a few light showers trace amounts to the south baby later on tonight. tomorrow morning just some clouds out there. some fog could be regrouping right near the immediate coastline. in san jose for tomorrow temperatures starting off doubt day in the upper 50s. in san francisco temperatures tomorrow mainly in the mid 50s. some clouds to start out the day. around the 70 degree mark. in oakland as we wrap things up around the bay those readings on track to reach 76 degrees for afternoon highs. today the coolest day of the week. that means we will begin to warm things up for your thursday. this numbers up about -- in the north bay up quite a bit. up a good 10-12 degrees. here is a quick look at your five day forecast.
